    ..., the OCRR's newest slim gauge Princess, a Roco HOe 0-6-0 Schmalspur Dampf-lok somebody lovingly weathered some 20 odd years ago. Gotta love them junk boxes... :thumb:

    Maybe junk box wasn't quite the right description. This one was set out on top of a pile of lesser desirable stuff in various stages of disassembly and neglect that hadn't been placed out by the dealer yet. The vender is a woman I'm familiar with who is busy selling off her husband's estate, a man who collected everything...and I mean everything...model related and not just trains. Apparently he collected other people's work as well. I look forward to her ever year and it never ceases to amaze me just what treasures and goodies she has to offer and at really good prices.
